6:11am
waiting in line is the one thing that separates going to these big box stores and online deals to those experts who say shopping online could get you the same deals if not better. but again these black friday shoppers or black friday die- hard shoppers tell me that really it is about the experience and the people here. one shopper told us last night she has been lining up basically when her daughter who is a teenager now, since she was 3 months old. so again, it's a new "tradition" for these shoppers. cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> they are actually i guess going to celebrate thanksgiving in line, as well. right? didn't you talk to some people? >> reporter: yes, i did. i talked to one shop they are morning, i said what about thanksgiving? they bring thanksgiving dinner here to the line. >> what a tradition. >> they take their shopping seriously. cate, thank you. time now 6:12. a fireball on tape. fishermen tape the moments of a

6:17am
it is still there blocking one lane. possibly a second accident near tully is off to the right-hand shoulder. but this is what it's doing to the drive time. a little stop and go from 280 towards 237. 280 through downtown looks great and the guadalupe parkway no delays. a quick note of course it's monday night football tonight at candlestick. 49ers and bears, 5:30 is game time. so expect some delays along 101, 280 maybe a better option if you are cruising along that area later on this evening. that's a check of your "timesaver traffic." for more on your monday night football forecast and the rest of the week ahead, here's lawrence. >> that's a big game tonight! i mean, two titans right now, the bears and the 49ers right here on cbs 5. a few clouds outside now, folks. looks like it should be a nice day out there as we are going to stay mostly dry. a chance we could see rain north of the golden gate bridge. plenty of clouds, mild temperatures and showers could return as early as tomorrow. and i'll show you why. we have that cold front that's
6:18am
lingering to the north but high pressure is in place. so we are going to see a lot of clouds over the top of the ridge for today and really a good part of tomorrow but late in the day tomorrow, the whole cold front is going to start to slide down in our direction when the weather changes. but for right now, the rain is staying mainly to our north. but the clouds continuing to move across our skies. cloudy skies in the bay area now. and as we head throughout the afternoon, we'll see pockets of sunshine, more clouds rolling in and then by tomorrow afternoon, we begin to see some showers developing in parts of the north bay. but it's a slow mover. it takes its time moving through the bay area overnight on tuesday night and early wednesday morning and then it's gone so big travel day on wednesday and i think it looks pretty good. speaking of traveling, sfo right now no delays reported yet. mostly cloudy skies. temperatures mainly in the 60s by the afternoon. around the country not a bad day to get around either. 75 degrees in houston. 64 in denver. 57 degrees mostly cloudy in chicago. and 48 a little cool but partly cloudy into new york. temperatures around the bay area mainly in the 60s for today. and then it looks like as we head toward the holiday, chance
6:19am
of showers for late tomorrow and then mainly tomorrow night into early wednesday morning. then we dry things out for the better part of wednesday. thanksgiving looks dry and looks like dry and warmer near 70 degrees as we head into the weekend. back to you. >> i know you went out and bought a bunch of twinkies and dingdongs over the weekend. they are going to bankruptcy court today. hostess is. texas based hostess plans to sell off its assets but some more popular products could make a comeback with $2.5 billion in revenue a year analysts say there is a good chance someone will at least buy a piece of hostess and carry on the brand. and this just in. the ceo of santa clara based intel paul ottolini plans to retire in may. he plans to help with the leadership transition. he has been with the company for 40 years and is only its fifth ceo. a bizarre fight is caught on tape after a milwaukee police officer says he responded to a man chasing cars
6:20am
with a squirt gun. a witness recorded this video of the officer and the clown in a brawl. the clown is a fixture outside the city's government building and considered a community activist. >> the officer reached for him and then all of a sudden the next thing you know they are on the ground punching each other. >> police wouldn't go on camera but they said the clown resisted arrest. [ laughter ] >> in this video -- i'm glad neither was injured. >> thank you. it's 6:20. the raiders took on the high- flying saints. could they pull off an upset? >> we shall see. plus, the warriors taking on the thunder. whose triple-double helped their team to a big win coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,, happiness located?

6:23am
6:24am
we have a big game tonight on cbs 5. we have the bears and the san francisco 49ers, should be mostly cloudy, temperatures in the 60s. >> and taking a look at some of our bridges and other roads across the bay area, it's really only the bay bridge where things are starting to stack up. they turn the metering lights 25 minutes ago. also, we got some delays from the south bay, coming up, 101 because of an accident there. we'll tell you about that in a few minutes. a tough day for the raiders at home against the new orleans saints. >> the raiders were down 7 in the 1st quarter jacobs got the interception and scores. look at palmer and meyers connecting on a touchdown but saints won. raiders now 3-7 on the season. >> tonight the san francisco 49ers are at home against the

tradition. >> down here we get to know each other. we converse and spend thanksgiving together. but we all were out here last year and it's like sometimes like competition who is going to get here first. >> reporter: shoppers told me at midnight friday, best buy will each give them a ticket to secure their big purchase and place in line. until then, they all look out for each other taking shifts when one goes to work or when one goes for a shower so it is sort of a community event and again it's a tradition for them -- or new tradition they started around black friday but they are not going to be missing on thanksgiving meals. the shopper told me that thanksgiving meal actually comes to them here in the line. so they are really changing things around. live in pinole, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> their own little holiday tradition. >> they get good deals. 6:41. toned teens. what substances boys and girls

trafficking. but the measure is hitting a welcome back. 6:44. on election day california voters approved prop 35 aimed at cracking down on sex trafficking. but the measure is hitting a snag over first amendment questions. melissa griffin is here from the "san francisco examiner" to break down the controversy. good to see you. >> reporter: good morning.
6:45am
thanks for having me back. 81% of californians endorsed proposition 35 to crackdown on sex trafficking. on november 6, voters endorsed it. on november 7 a judge stopped some of its provisions from taking effect. now, specifically, there are provisions of that law that require registered sex offenders to disclose all of their email accounts all of their user name profiles and all of their internet service provider information to local authorities. the aclu stepped in and said that's a violation of free speech. a judge agreed to temporarily halt the provisions of a law that require those things until a full hearing in the middle of december. about 73,000 sex owe fenn, are registered in the state of california. so if this does take effect, that is a lot of information about people's internet activity for law enforcement to deal with. >> we were talk off camera. if you wanted to comment about something you wrote in the examiner or something in the "chronicle" you set up a user name and you go on. it's an alias more than
6:46am
anything else, right? so you can throw up your opinions. how do they know who's who and enforce it. >> reporter: it's impossible to enforce. it looks a provision of the law meant to piggyback on larger charges or supplement charges where maybe you can't make out the crime itself so you charge them with failure to turn over your user name sort of like how al capone was arrested for tax evasion not for being a gangster. they made out the case for the fact he failed to turn over the user name and serious penalty years in prison. that's an interesting use of tax dollars. >> what do the backers say? >> we prior sex offenders to turn over personal and private information all the time and now that trafficking has largely moved to the internet, there's nothing wrong with requiring registered sex offenders to provide internet
6:47am
information, as well. >> awkward. >> yeah. >> reporter: definitely. it's getting strange. so cruz kelly the main proponent of prop 35 ran against kamala harris to be the state attorney general so now we're in a position where state attorney general harris has to defend chris kelly's law her former opponent in election. and chris kelly has filed with the court to enter the case because he argues among other things that the state attorney general is not going to pursue the defense of the law vigorously so he inserted himself in the case because he says he doesn't know if kamala harris will do a good job so infighting between the two seems to be king. kamala harris on friday said she is going to be cracking down on human trafficking as part of her administration's priorities. >> you will find more of melissa's segments on cbssf.com/mornings. a silicon valley giant is searching for a new boss. >> here to talk about that is
